Jasper


One of the highlights of the past weekend was the appearance of the elegant Jasper String Quartet at the WCR Center for the Arts. Four superb young musicians delivered twelve movements of three pieces: Mozart’s String quartet in D Major K. 575, the Bartok No.6 and after intermission: Dvorak’s “American” string quartet in F Major Op.96.

The two ladies of the quartet wore stunning, simple gowns that helped reveal not only their shoulders but also the supreme and clever wit of the quartet. The men wore dark suits, white shirts and solid-colored neckties – the ties to coordinate one for one with the ladies’ gowns, which were a lovely blue for Sae Chonabayashi, who plays violin and a nice sound red on the figure of Rachel Henderson, who delighted all of the audience with her drop dead gorgeous playing of the cello.
